Mill Valley Public Library, Lucretia Little History Room

The Lucretia Little History Room is dedicated to illuminating the unique and vibrant history of Mill Valley and making this history accessible to people of all ages and interests. We accomplish this by collecting, preserving, and promoting materials of enduring value pertaining to people, places, and events associated with Mill Valley and a few select nearby areas, such as Mount Tamalpais and Muir Woods, that are an essential part of Mill Valley’s historic heritage.

The History Room and the Mill Valley Historical Society have shared a close relationship since their respective foundings in 1977. Since its opening, the Lucretia Little History Room has operated under the jurisdiction of the Mill Valley Public Library and the City of Mill Valley, and its collection is owned by the Library. The Historical Society is a separate nonprofit organization which is not governed by the City. The Historical Society and the Library collaborate in many areas, including on exhibitions, the Mill Valley Oral History Program, and the First Wednesday lecture series. The Historical Society provides valued funding and membership resources to support the History Room’s projects, while the Library provides research support for the Historical Society’s programs and publications, from its annual History Walk to the Mill Valley Historical Review.
